With winter rounding into form, homeowners are naturally concerned about several heating and air elements. You want the inside of a home to be comfortable and safe from the elements, and you want to achieve this without an inordinately high utility bill.
At All Hours Plumbing, Heating & Air, our heating and AC services are just the thing to assist you. Apart from assisting you with basic inspections and tune-ups for your furnace and other heating elements, we can help with one underplayed risk that comes with a home that’s too warm: A flea invasion. Especially if you have pets like cats or dogs, you may not have realized how large a risk fleas can be this time of year. Here are some basics to know.
There are two factors that lead to fleas breeding and thriving: Heat and humidity. The warmer temperatures get, the higher the chances of fleas being present – they can survive in temperatures ranging from 70 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
While high humidity isn’t a huge concern for Utahns who are outdoors, it absolutely can be inside. Some homes have humidifiers or other conditions that lead to highly humid rooms or areas, and when combined with high heat and the presence of flea-drawing pets like dogs or cats, the risk of an infestation can go way up for these homes.
Some basic advice we can offer on avoiding a flea infestation before it ever gets started this winter:
